Abstract : The report describes the physical principles involved in measuring the Total Electron Content (TEC) together with the equipment used. Details are also given of the main steps in the computer program used to calculate the TEC. The report deals with the TEC results measured simultaneously at two stations. This provides a means of testing the consistency of the results obtained using the first and second order theory. The report contains the tabulated results of the values of the TEC as measured at Legon. The results cover the period October 1964 to July 1967 and are given for both the first and second order theory. Various appendices give the source programs (in Fortran II) used in the calculations.
